Today promises to be long and tedious, so wearing Bvlgari Black.
Mmmm, everyone smells lovely. I love fall fragrances.
Today I am also in a Montale, mine's Black Aoud for a chilly grey day.
Love your new avatar, Quarry!
Working from home in Stella today.
Aoud Roses Petals for me today.
Leathery goodness for me too -- today it's Chanel Cuir de Russie.
Hi tang!! Cooler weather = more perfume
Yum, Mike! Just got a sample of AdV too.
Today it's Bvlgari Black for me.
Bvlgari Eau Parfumee au The Vert.
Good luck, lally!
Un Jardin sur le Nil today.
Folavril for a spring day struggling out of its bud.
Happy birthday, lievje! I was just gonna say, 42 is a verrry special number! :)
Rainy today, so wearing a little sun: Jardin sur le Nil (scent twins with BrothaG!)
Coco-Coriandre roll on perfume from our local fabulous bath products shop, The Soap Opera. :)
This almost reminds me of various fig-type frags! (green coconut underlaid with cedar and coriander)
Rain, rain go away...
No. 19 EDT
Back into the daily grind after an exhausting weekend sniffing at the Mall of America.
...And sunny, warm, and windy it is today! The daffodils and hyacinths are just starting to bloom!
Be sure to set yourself a rational budget while you are still rational. Things can get dangerous, especially in the early stages! :D
I, too, consider fragrance as part of the day's construction of identity. There are days where I consciously choose based on my perceptions of others' perceptions, and days where I...
Thanks so much, kbe!
Yes... Although for me, it's some fleeting idea of a scent, which I don't have access to exploring given my geographic location. Then my bank account cries, if I let...
There are some scents that feel like they run counter to how I feel, or who I imagine myself to be today (my personality), or who I would like to be today.
I don't think it's a question of...
I'm wearing a Maison de la Vanille also -- Vanille Sauvage de Madagascar! Yesterday was Folavril weather, and today was...not. Dark, dreary, blustery. At least it's not snowing.
Scent twins with tigrushka in Folavril.
Happy Friday everyone!
Eau Parfumee au The Vert.
Yay for nerdiness! Who else has a spreadsheet that looks at one worksheet and automatically counts checkmarks on the primary worksheet? :wave: Unfortunately, didn't keep data on houses for each.
Finally made up my mind about which frags are FBW... And finally scraped some money together to take advantage of a few super deals! So:
evilBay - Jardin en Mediterranee
Beauty Encounter -...
Hi, tang! Love those spreadsheets! :)
Sadly, I repeated quite a bit towards the end of the month. I find myself in an interesting position of a) being new to scents and trying to figure out my...
CdG Kyoto for another one of those In Between Days.
Thoughts are with those who are ill or distressed today.
What a fabulous picture, quarry!
And you smell springy, tang!
Spring come back! Ambre Narguile for me again today.
Back (sort of) after a longish hiatus. Crap weather today after a taste of spring, so Ambre Narguile it is.
Happy Birthday, Lady in Black! I love love love all the unicorns that have popped up in tribute!
Scent twins with DeeOlive in Stella today!
And thanks to all well-wishers yesterday -- I passed...
me too, sakecat... I've only gotten compliments from my husband, and that's usually when I'm really near him. And sometimes not even then. He's not very attuned to smells sometimes.
But he has...
Scentless today! I have my prospectus defense for my doctoral program this morning. Please send prayers/happy thoughts/good vibes/whatever my way! I'm totally nervous!...
Trying out Premier Figuier today.
Joining the Hermes folks today by trying Un Jardin en Mediterranee. So far no repeats this month!
Trying out Annick Goutal Folavril. Today it's supposed to get up to 52/11!!! w00t!! :grin:
Trying out Habit Rouge today.
Trying out Habit Rouge today.
Continuing to be diverse with another new, untried sample of mine: Pink Sugar!!
This is pretty nice. The sillage is surprisingly strong on me, but I think it'll work nicely in the summer as a...
Eau Parfumee au The Vert
Bvlgari Eau Parfumee au The Vert today!
Reached first for the Tea for Two (for comfort!) and then thought, what about alertness!
It may have worked, I got my fellowship application turned in, a...
Elixir des Merveilles. So far no repeats yet this month, and sticking to my plan of trying out all untried samples.
I'm being a terrible enabler, but you do realize that the 1/2 oz. bottles are available for $5 each on demeterfragrance.com? :)
FYI, I think the Lobster may have a butter note to it, so that may NOT...
I *will* give all of my testers a full wearing this month before buying anything, so I've got two more to compare!
Today's Testing: Violets and Roses
Left arm - Bvlgari pour Femme -...
Scent triplets in Tea for Two! Yummy, spicy, smoky, tea-y.
Why is it 20 with a wind chill of 2 today, when it was 60 yesterday? Why??
(that's -7 C and 15 C!)
Trying out Comme des Garcons Kyoto right now... Very tranquil and centering, with a bit of...
Oooh, you smell good and you've got a fun evening ahead of you. Sounds like so much fun!
Mmmm, everyone smells yummy in my mind... I'm feeling stressed and a bit fragile today, so my current old new favorite was in order: Ambre Narguile.
...Wish I could smell anything! :)
Scent twins with kbe today in Tea for Two. It's a bit colder here (24F, feels like 12F) I'd be OK with 12C, but nooooo!
Tried to be an iris-wearer today in Prada Infusion d'Iris, but I couldn't...
Trying out Premier Figuier Extreme right now... I'm liking it, but it just doesn't do it for me right now... Not sure... I can barely smell anything right now, so today's prolly not a good testing...
Hmmm... I think Chanel No. 19, or maybe even Coco Mademoiselle. Depending on mood.
sakecat, you're right about the past thread thread being really helpful. I also like the infos on OsMoz. Hey!...
Yes, that's one of my two ferrets, Loki! He's a big soft lumbering ferretbear! :D
The other is Yuki. She's white and will probably show up as an avatar sometime soon again.
It's so hard to...
Can't smell anything today, so my SotD is just a homemade essential oil blend I call Cold-Be-Gone that I've got going in the oil diffuser.
Notes: Peppermint, Lavender, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Lemon
I've seen that a lot of you switch scents partway through the day (e.g., work scent, and evening scent). I do this too: for example, I might wear a little Chanel No. 19 at work and then switch to L...
Playing hooky from working on my prospectus. Can I have just one minute for myself??
Well, today's a day for Ambre Narguile. My sample from tang dwindles.....
And yesterday's SotD (I can't...
Wearing Ambre Narguilé on a blustery but sunny winter day. I developed such a craving for non-florals during my Springathon week, this is just the ticket. I feel positively edible! Thanks tang! ;)...
Google Docs rocks my world! My motto: Do Not Trust Your Backup Disk! Backup your backups! :) And it's a really easy way to publish stuff too. (wish lists, etc.) This is my first foray into their...
lally's stuck in limerick mode! :D
Last day of my springathon. The roads melted off some, and I see some temperatures near freezing in the next few days. Yay?
I'm repeating my Prada Infusion...
I’ve got some of the EDT (and I know that people have said that the parfum is far better, but then again there are those who happily wear the EDT). I liked it—on me the cloves really stand out—but...
Scent twins with tdi today!
Prada Infusion d'Iris
OK, that makes more sense. I was thinking you were limited to 2 *samples* per order. Thanks!
Springerrific in Jo Malone Red Roses!
I've got a notebook somewhere around here with some favorite poems in it, but I don't have time at the moment to dig around for it...
So, here's one I ran across the other day that I liked:
L'Artisan Drole de Rose
I'm also thinking about purchasing from LuckyScent. How many samples can you order at once? When I place them in my cart, there's always a "Limit 2 Samples per Order" message. Not correct?
Glad to hear things are going well so far at university, Tavorna! I'm curious to find out what you think of the new spring Miss Dior Cherie.
I feel quite springy in Caron Aimez-Moi! Kinda...
Un Jardin sur le Nil for me today...
I can't see it either, but I've been going into the Preferences option in the Wardrobe and typing in stuff to that. Then I'll know what I need to add when the Add to Wardrobe option works again!
OK, celebrating pseudospring by trying out my Bulgari pour Femme at work. Oh, the violets!
Sure! I think anything you consider cheery is in order!
<crossposted> I'm starting out the week with Bulgari pour Femme.
Top note : Bergamot, Violet,...
I am a bouquet of roses from the florist!!
SotD: Jo Malone Red Roses
SotE: Coco Mademoiselle
Darn it, I'm wearing blue today. Maybe I should go change.
YAY JILLSY!! I'm planning on light flowers, stuff like violets, greenish roses, and iris.
Brielle, I shall do my best to send my sillage your way! :)
And this venture may be quixotic at best,...
I'm having trouble deciding. Either something that makes me feel flirty (maybe Coco Mademoiselle? I like it) or something that he likes (perhaps Ambre Narguile). I was also thinking of going with...
Testing Day again!
Left arm: Caron Aimez Moi -- nice big blast of anise quickly followed by softness and vanilla
Right arm: YSL Paris
Switched Over To:
I'm starting to feel a bit closed-in and oppressed by the winter weather we're having here, and I long for spring fever to hit me. I'm going to try and speed spring's arrival by wearing nothing but...
SL Daim Blond for work -- got a compliment! Whee!
New testing scents:
Left wrist: Bulgari au The Rouge
Right wrist: Ambre Narguile
I just came back from smelling it on paper, so let's see... I like the smell of the whole line (although I haven't tried it on skin yet), but there's some kind of "base" in most of B&BW's products...
Very cold, snow expected, having a doldrums day.
A testing day!
Left wrist: Eau des Merveilles -- a holiday near the sea, powdery with a soft flower nearby
Right wrist: Daim Blond -- really ripe...
Yet another deadline, this time on Sunday at midnight. Stella keeping me company so I can be productive.
Bvlgari Eau Parfumée au Thé Vert for me today. Tonight, something more fun...
SotE is Prada.
Trying out Tea for Two from a sample! Yum yum!
tang, I must try the SDV sometime! Sounds scrumptious!
That was a great decription, Tavorna! I love ohanami and I didn't realize the cherry blossom series was created for that occasion! I'll have to find someplace to sniff it, now! Thanks!!
There's a place here in town that specializes in bath and body products, and I remembered seeing Magno soap on the shelf (who could forget a black soap? :)). They also do mail-order through their...
Everyone smells lovely today!
Me, Bvlgari Eau Parfumee au The Vert for work.
Beautiful! Look at all that hair! I'm so happy for you!
Was stuck in my carrel in the library with a deadline on Monday, so needed some comforting Stella. Don't own any animalics yet (might be in the mail!).
Cold cold cold with little tiny (so far) flakes.
(Well, not as cold as last week! It's a heat wave!!)
Testing the work waters and steeling myself with a light spritz of No. 19 edt. (inspiration...
Apple cider soapy in Burberry Classic.
Those are adorable dogs, Tavorna!
I, too, have only a partial month. Since I'm still a beginner, and I like to know how a fragrance will evolve on the skin, many of these days were testing days. ...
Mmm, good choice. Hope all goes well in spite of the planets... Goodness knows it's messing up things over here! :D
Work-at-home day = Testing Day!
Left Arm - Prada (who says...
LOL, and quoting to Mr. Caviglia, who also LOL. :D
Hear, hear, dpak! If my budget were any bigger, I'd prolly have bought, oh, 50 bottles of "one true loves"...
I've been trying to find a nice lavender-based scent for women the past few months!
Here are some that I haven't tried, so I'm not sure of how "lavendery" they are. Their descriptions sound like...
Spring-fresh in Eau de Cartier (so as not to fumigate my students). But craving vanilla.
Sounds like my evening last night too, spent between Fishbone and Perfumed Court. :D Had a Word document with all my Fishbone stuff in it, then trashed the whole thing. ("OK, I think I can afford...
LOL, that's wonderful!
I remember a time when I was in middle school that I was OBSESSED with the Tom Hulce Mozart. Hee!
For me, coziness again in Stella. It's not exciting or dynamic, but...
Happy happy anniversary! Here's to many more!! :beer:
Cozy in Stella today!
[Yesterday working all day in Burberry Classic. Spiced apple soap on me, nothing too special.]
Late, but here goes!
If I had known I'd be changing a flat tire in negative wind chill, I would've picked something cozier than Eau de Cartier. :)
Happy Birthdays, Tovah!!
Working (ha ha) from home today: sweatshirt and Mitsouko. Go team!
Rest assured that there are still newbies here! :) I'm 28 and started my Adventures in Fragrance this past November! Haven't even gotten to the niche scents yet, still working on what I can sniff...
Hey, thanks for posting that. A very interesting read!
